| CUSTOM-I-ZATION |

Customizing:
look at alt.ini there are some colors that you can change.
it is possible to deactivate the sounds if don't like them.



Wallpaper:
in alt64.ini, there is an entry "background_image" that can have the
value of a filename of a png file located at /ED64/wallpaper/

*rule: PNG | 320 x 240 | 24 bits

Copy any image from browser paste into IRFANVIEW save in PNG 320 x 240 resolution 24 bits.

The name must be bg_01.png ... bg_02.png ... ba_XX.png etcetera ...
And it should go in the WALLPAPER folder inside ED64.

If you want to change the name of the wallpaper to load or choose a different one, you must edit the ALT64.ini parameter (inside the ED64 folder) called:

background_image = bg_01.png

Simply open it with the Notepad and edit that parameter.




Boxart:
there are two convert scripts in the archive
convert.bat for windows
convert.sh for linux


Windows:
first you have to download ImageMagick
http://www.imagemagick.org/download/binaries/ImageMagick-6.8.6-8-Q16-x86-windows.zip


After that you have to find a package like "Nintendo 64 2D Box Art (303) (No-Intro)"
and then you have to extract it into a subdirectory into the imagemagick directory

if you are ready you can execute convert.bat in the subdirectory


Linux:
you have to install imagemagick, too
after that you can execute the convert.sh file in the directory where your
pngs files are.

Both:
If you have successfully renamed and resized your files you can copy them
to
/ED64/boxart/lowres/

 

change FONTS

This is for very exquisite people, I put by default a call TINYTYPE the font should not be very thick or very small so you can read well on a tube TV like mine. By pressing the "C up" button on a rom or file you will see its full name.

Well inside the folder ED64 there is a call FONTS there are all the available sources, to see them I recommend downloading the following program:

8x8 Pixel ROM Font Editor (In the Download section download the last 2.7)

of this page: https://www.min.at/prinz/o/software/pixelfont/

Once the source is chosen, you must use software that is included in the firmware download (the first one) and that is in the ED64 folder called "ed64font"

they must copy the source to where this software is plus the OS64.v64

EXAMPLE (they must have the 3 files in the same folder):

TINYTYPE.pf
OS64.v64
ed64font

Whats Next? very easy drag the font to the ed64font and it will only put it, that if it lets you do it once only. If you already did it and want to change the source you must place the original OS64. I in the Backup folder leave the originals also the program makes a backup, just delete the new and edit the extension of the original.
You can also edit the ALT64.ini and in the source part place the name of your source, in the section:

menu_font = TINYTYPE.pf

I edit both executables (the OS64 and OS64P) and also the ALT.ini nose if all those steps are done or with one reaches, I clarify if they should do all the steps ...
